THE WORLD'S BEST GOLF SIMULATOR

Home » Simulator Technology

more industry firsts than any other simulator company

At our core, HD Golf is an engineering & software firm.

The entire simulator, subsystems ball/player tracking technology, software and infrastructure are designed, built and serviced by our team.

Simulator Club & Ball Tracking

HD pioneered the use of Computer Vision Technology in the golf & multi-sport simulator industry. Our patented smart-cameras take more measurements, more accurately than any other simulator company.In real-time and throughout ball flight, our software converts these measurements into visually realistic shot outcomes that keep players coming back. In real-time and throughout ball flight, our software converts these measurements into visually realistic shot outcomes that keep players coming back.

Simulator Measurements

We measure ALL critical input & ball parameters to analyze each shot a player makes on the simulator. There are, at minimum 4 cameras capturing their swing. They analyze spin, club head speed, launch angle, swing path, object contact (heel/toe), club face (open/closed), and smash factor.

Simulator Accuracy

Comprehensive measurements are critical, but the accuracy of these measurements is equally important. HD Golf Simulators measure with supreme accuracy. For example, we measure club face angle contact to within 1/10th of 1 degree.  

Golf Ball Spin

Our dedicated and integrated spin camera is an industry first. Mounted above the player and accurate to +/-100rpm, it provides accurate & realistic ball flight, bounce & roll-allowing you to put subtle or aggressive spin ensuring accurate & realistic competition.

Golf Course Modelling

HD Golf developed revolutionary 3D modelling software to incorporate REAL COURSE DATA (hi-res digital images, geophysical and satellite) into the player experience.  This creates exceptional realism and gameplay players immediately notice! We are the ONLY simulator company to use real course data — courses LOOK and PLAY like the real course.

Pro Golf Instruction Studio

Become a better golfer with the HD Pro Instruction Studio!

Our suite of easy-to-use golfer improvement tools, modules and workshops will make you a better golfer. Video swing analysis can overlay your swing with the ideal swing. Pressure mapping and weight transfer in slow motion make it easy to work on your golf swing.

Add the Jim McLean 8-Step Swing and the Dave Pelz Backyard Experience to further create a world-class golf improvement center.

Even better, the simulator lets you capture and send video swings to your instructor.  They can use the optional microphone and record audio feedback to share with you. It’s a great way to accelerate improvement

Best Simulator Operating System

HD uses stable, application specific/high performance, virus & bug-free LINUX OS. Its supreme reliability and performance creates a powerful system that can process incredibly complex data sets for accurate ball flight and object tracking.

Simulator Hit Screen

Our high quality, proprietary multi-element (3-layer) hitting/projection screen is quiet with low rebound. Our high-performance, non-marking screens last the longest regardless of the sport you’re playing.

Remote Diagnostics & Live Support

We offer our Customers 24/7 Support & Remote diagnostics. One call and you’re connected to the engineers and technicians who designed, built and installed your Simulator. Our patented and industry-first remote diagnostics allow, upon your approval, immediate access to your simulator. Our team can connect by internet to update software, add games or identify & fix any challenge in real-time.

Comprehensive and Accurate Measurement

HD measures ALL critical object & club parameters to analyze every shot. At minimum 4 cameras work together during the player action sequence. They analyze club head speed, launch angle, swing path, object contact (heel/toe), club face (open/closed) and smash factor.

These comprehensive measurements are critical, but the accuracy of these measurements is equally important. HD Simulators measure with supreme accuracy. For example, we measure club face angle contact to within 1/10th of 1 degree and ball spin to +/- 100 RPM.

Simulator Quality

HD Golf Simulators™ redefined the Gold Standard in build-quality and integrated technology. Quality in a refined packaged is immediately obvious from first swing and makes your ownership experience a true pleasure. Our steadfast commitment to the ‘exceptional’ combined with minimal operating and maintenance costs ensures unparalleled reliability for years.

HD Golf™ has extensive engineering capabilities extending through our hardware, software and mechanical design. We design & build all critical system components in-house and ensure seamless system integration. Most competitors cobble together third party hardware and software to make their simulators – resulting in compromised reliability & system incompatibilities.

We are committed to ‘only using’ top quality professional-grade components such as: High Performance, ‘Intelligent’ Cameras, Professional Engineering Workstations, Linux Operating Systems, Multi-Element Screens and Spring-Set Nylon Turf. Collectively, our systems deliver unrivalled quality, superior performance and exceptional reliability.

Competitors typically use lower cost, inferior components, such as: Home PC’s to run their simulators, which tend to suffer from instability and frequent required updates. They also use polypropylene turf, single element-screens with high elasticity-rebound and reduced longevity. Both screens & turf last a half-life when compared to our in-house designed screens & turf. Other areas of compromise extend to their third party cameras which capture your swing, but don’t form a complete alliance with the rest of the system.

Player Improvement

HD Golf™ was the first to develop a completely integrated Professional Golf Studio, ensuring Teaching Professionals, Clubfitters and Individuals have the best tools available for game-improvement.

Video Swing Analysis, 3D Motion Analysis, and Weight Transfer / Balance Analysis are all designed with one purpose: make you a better golfer.

In reality, a golf swing happens very quickly, and can be difficult to improve, especially when you don’t have analytics and recording technology to visualize the swing. Subtle adjustments can result in dramatic improvements – it’s critical you understand your individual swing dynamics. You don’t need to be computer savvy to use the Golf Studio. The integrated Golf Studio operates from a single touch screen, and is simple to use.

Jim McLean’s 8 Step Swing, which incorporates the swings of Ernie Els, Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods, is an additional feature many HD Golfers decide to add to their simulators. Step by step, a golfer is able to perfect every element of their swing. The simulator records and analyzes a golfer’s swing in real time. When the system detects that the golfer’s position and swing are out of the “corridor of success” or have committed a “death move”, the simulator will automatically alert the golfer and present virtual coaching from Jim McLean.

Dave Pelz Short Game Training: Legendary golf coach Dave Pelz entrusted HD Golf with recreating his short game training programs, including his own backyard course. “Through the magic of HD Golf, I am thrilled to be able to give my backyard experience – to you. It’s the perfect way for you to practice your short game and shoot lower scores!” – Dave Pelz
